You're almost there. You want to use a global option that tells CVS not to
actually run the command.

I suggest you spend some time browsing the manual, studying the commands and
their options - it will be time well spent:

In order to force you to read the manual, I have not told you exactly which
global option you need to use ;=)

I will give you one tip, though - if you change directories into pl30, you
will no longer need to specify the -d option:

cd pl30
cvs -[ha! you still have to look it up] update
